In the Aftermath

Well the election is over, and although I am not totally pleased by the results (although what I wanted wasn't really even possible), I am very happy to be spared from the constant inundation of political ads.

Not much changed in my area of the country, and we weren't really that surprised. Although both A and I agonized over who to vote for we suspected the President would be reelected. In some ways I am more hopeful because I was not a fan of Romney. I really only thought he was a teeny, tiny bit better, and I questioned that at times.

I am encouraged because I hope that in four years time we will be ready for a change, and that that change will be offered in a much better candidate than Romney. In a perfect world an awesome third party candidate would emerge that would break up this horrible deadlock! That's my take on the election.


PS. I have figured out how to balance the budget. Federally legalize pot, and tax the h*ll out of it ;)


  1. I agree with you about this election! Not a fan of either candidate, and while I disagree with Obama on a lot of things, on some issues I think he's actually better than Romney.

    We'll see.

  2. Hahaha, Husband is excited to see what happens in Colorado.

    1. Oh, and it should be noted that Husband has never done drugs a day in his life. This is purely from a war-on-drugs, tax-income perspective.

  3. I agree, I am glad it's over but I am not surprised by the outcome. I think we should seriously start talking about a third party candidate in this country.

  4. I love your balanced budget idea! :-) It's a good one!
    I was disappointed too in the choices of candidates. It is the lesser of two evils, not a better candidate, which is not how it should be, but politics is all snakes & money it seems like. The good guys always get shut out.
